HAMMOND -- Spay/Neuter/Now has been awarded a $15,000 Animal Population Control Program grant by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The program is designed to support low-cost spay/neuter programs for low-income cat and dog owners in New York.
“The anticipated impact of this grant is the local spay/neuter of more than 300 cats and 100 dogs over the next year,” said Kevin T. Mace, general manager of Spay/Neuter/Now.
“Our organization’s ability to operate is dependent on donations, fundraisers and grants such as this and we are eternally grateful to the ASPCA for supporting spaying and neutering. Spaying and neutering is the most effective long-term and humane method we have to combat the issues caused by companion animal overpopulation,” said Mace.
